Cry Trust not what the future may hold...

Dear Rivka,

I thought I would take a moment to share with you and others what I got from you, your thread and the revelry you have shared.


Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero

"Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future."



Please stay in touch Rivka. The smiles you send help more than you could ever know.

Your sharing through adversity is an inspiration. It has helped to keep me focused and has helped to keep me living for the day looking forward to better days while not expecting them to be trouble free.

This thread coming to an end will leave a void and your revelry will be missed.

All the best.
Simeon

Well.........

I dunno what to say what hasn't been said allready but this is sad enough to tempt me out of lurker-mode.

The TDP and Kaneman RR's are actually the first ones i read from start to finish, and I have enjoyed them a lot. I found them very personal and an inspiration. Moreso am I sorry to see both threads killed in the same fashion.

I will miss this report but very much respect your decision to quit.

Thank you, take care, safe travels, safe cooking....

thanks for the memories

TDP - thanks for the wonderful stories of riding, and trials and tribulations that surround that insatiable desire to keep riding, no matter the cost. you've been an inspiration to us all, and while this thread may be ending, i'm sure your future here on adv does not; you're an asset to the community, and someone who was able to put into words & photos the love of the road.

i hope that someday we can meet in person and ride together.

That takes a lot more courage than the folks who have bitched about her down in the basement have exhibited in their whining. So Rivka, it will always be your ride and your report. None of us can take that away from you. I will miss your reports but expect that another RR will eventually make it's way here. I look forward to the next one!

FTFY

See that's the problem, it goes both ways. It's a tricky bit of stuff, this thread, enjoyable sure, but not a ride report IMHO.

I hope TDP finds a venue for her thoughts ... personally I think she would do well to just ask the mods to move it to Inmates, then it could live just as it has. Okay, sure, it wouldn't have the protection of the rules of RR, but if it's not an RR to start with ... .

Ride safe, Rivka. And when you do go on an ADVenturous ride, please feel free to report on it here, there are obviously many people who care.

Oh well. Perfect excuse to buy a new Canon SX20 IS with my Christmas bonus. Awesome point and shoot with a 20x optical zoom and tons of options. Will still probably buy another kodak for action shots while riding. It's more compact, and I wouldn't want to drop the $400.00 Canon while doing 70mph
What's a Christmas bonus?

I think you'll find lots of blogs in Inmates.

Dude - disagree with me all you want, but don't "quote" me with words I didn't write.

Why should she? If the mods don't have a problem with it being here, then the only reason she'd have move it would be to please people like you. And if this was moved to inmates, there's no way it'd survive what the nonsense that passes for discourse down there.

There were rides. They were reported. Sure there was some "inbetween" stuff, but the readership was interested in what was happening, and it served as filler between the outings - much like some of the longer rides which have also been reported here.

Now that we have a Day Trippin' forum and DP's thread is mostly about her day trips, it's back on!
